New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy Appoints ELEC Commissioners
Gov. Phil Murphy appointed four new commissioners to the state’s campaign finance watchdog agency.
The Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) oversees campaign spending, lobbying, and pay-to-play in the state.
In addition to providing Murphey with the power to appoint these commissioners, Senate Bill 2866 made a number of substantial changes to ethics laws.
These changes included increasing spending and contribution limits; overhauling pay-to-play laws; and shortening how long the state’s election watchdog commission can investigate campaign finance violations.
